1.         Agenda: Agenda approved as distributed.

2.         Minutes: August 17, 2012 approved with one correction (Bui-Burton/Steel).

3.        PLP Update: PLP Executive Committee will meet at CLA, November 2, 2012. There was no update on Print on Demand since PLP Executive Director has not received the business plan from the bookstore owner. For MOBAC, there will be a Print on Demand demo at the February  meeting from a local Santa Cruz bookstore.

4.      Action Plan: Landers will send the Brown Act document to all committees, and the document will also be posted on MOBAC website. Committees are subject to Brown Act, but Community of Interest is not. MOBACinfo listserv will be up shortly for members to share info, ideas and training/workshops. Action Plan was updated. Literacy Task Force’s decision to become Committee will be postponed until our end-of-the year meeting, when we will review and confirm/reconfirm all of our committees.

5.      ILL Committee Task Force on Courier Services. Truong provided the cost of 2 days/week for libraries who currently have 3 days/week delivery / The cost would be $6,000 less than what we pay currently, but both MPL and PAC will need to pay additional $200 per month.

6.     Bombard and Bui-Burton attended “Are You Ready” Disaster Preparedness workshop. This was an important workshop for all members. MOBAC should be thinking about having this workshop for all members in the future

7.  ILL, Reference, SPLAMBA and Technology Committees presented their annual reports.


Agenda building:

  • Reconfirm committee roles-June meeting
